Abstract:

A novel mechatronic body weight support system (BWS) has been developed to provide precise body weight unloading for patients with neurological impairments during treadmill training. At unloading loads of up to 60 kg and walking speeds of up to 3.2 km/h the mean unloading error and the maximum unloading error of the presented BWS system is less than 1 kg and 3 kg, respectively. The desired unloading force is adjusted in less than 100 ms. Thus, not only constant BWS but also gait cycle dependent or time variant oscillations of the desired force can be realized with high accuracy.
